Board of Trustees
Malaria Consortium is governed by a Board of Trustees, which meets quarterly and for its Annual General Meeting (AGM). A Finance and Audit subcommittee monitors the finances of the organisation, meeting at least quarterly, and makes recommendations to the Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees takes the major strategic decisions for the organisation. Every year Trustees are invited to visit programmes in the field to ensure they are fully informed about Malaria Consortium’s activities at country level. Day-to-day operational decision-making is delegated to the Acting Chief Executive, who, with the other members of the Global Management Group, runs the organisation.
Our Board of Trustees are:
- Dr. Julian Lob-Levyt - Chair
- Richard Page - Treasurer
- Roger Wilson
